Frequently Asked Questions   

Q.  I think I want to leave medicine completely, would this preconference still be helpful to me?  
A.  Absolutely.  Part time supplemental income work builds experience, looks good on your resume, and can often lead to full time job offers.  For example, a freelance medical writer could be hired to work for a medical communications company, a niche consultant could be hired by a client or firm, and a file review consultant could be hired by an insurance or utilization review firm.  

Q.  How much detail do you get into as to each supplemental income avenue?  
A.  This is a fast moving survey course.  We provide ample information on each area for you to make a judgment as to whether or not you should pursue the area. Time does not allow us to provide detailed "how to" training.  Detailed training on niche consulting, expert witnessing, IMEs, file review consulting, and expert witnessing is available in separate courses from SEAK. 

Q.  How much money can I realistically make on the side?  
A.  A lot, depending upon your qualifications and how serious you take this.  We have trained physicians who have made $100,000+ working a few hours a week. 

Q.  Can I really do most of the work from home?  
A.  Yes.  

Q.  Are there other advantages to supplementing your income through these areas?  
A.  Yes.  The work can be fun, you gain valuable experience, you build your resume, and you diversify your income sources. 

Q.  What are overhead and start up costs?  
A.  These are both generally small to negligible as you are working from home as a consultant.  

Q.  What are the liability risks?  
A.  Generally far, far less than practicing clinical medicine.  

Q.  Do I need to be Board Certified?  
A.  For file reviews, IMEs, and expert witnessing, usually.  For writing and consulting definitely not.  

Q.  Do I need an active medical license?  
A.  For file reviews, IMEs, and expert witnessing, yes.  For writing and consulting, no. 

Q.  Is the material covered in this preconference also covered in the main Non-Clinical Careers Conference?  
A.  No.
